NOKIA E71 how to remove phone lock YIPPEE

[ Edited ]

 

 

I have finally found a site to unlock my E71   so u don't have to keep putting in 12345  before you can use your phone ((how annoying )) ... Download Nokia  PC Suite first (the updated one)  from site below ... Or if you already have it on your computer go to control panel click on add and remove then Nokia PC Suite it will ask you to install or repair click on repair and that will give you the updated version ....

 

 the only way you can remove phone lock is to update  your Nokia E71s  software ..But make sure you BACKUP your phone before hand or you will delete everything ..

 

open Nokia PC Suite then click on update software takes about 15min but well worth it

 

you can also download the games the phone originally came with ... Solitaire etc from this site

 

hope it works for you  I was about to throw my phone at a wall:smileymad:

Uhm, just go to security settings on your phone and disable phone lock. No need for all of those things you did.

 

You could activate and deactivate phone lock on your phone anytime you wish.

I disabled...after long days of trial and error, finally.



Its easy..go to menu-tools-encryption.

choose the phone memory to 'off'. (if u have ur phone encrypted, u have to first decrypt it)



now go to tools-settings-general-security-phone and sim card-phone autolock period.

change to 'none'



DONE .
